)-- Foot Doctor Cautions to Watch Your Step
Risk of Slip and Fall Injuries Goes Up as the Snow Comes Down This Winter
Dr. Scott O’Connor, a board-certified foot doctor in foot surgery and rear foot & reconstructive surgery, reminds Central Illinois residents to be careful when they are walking on ice or shoveling snow during the recent rash of winter storms hitting our area.
According to industry data, 1 million Americans sustain slip-and-fall injuries each year, and the risk of those sorts of injuries goes up this time of year. Slip and fall injuries also represent the primary cause of lost days from work. As recently as 2014, 42,480 workers required at least one day off from work due to injuries or illness from ice, sleet or snow, and 82 percent of those injuries (34,860) were due to slips or falls on even ground.
